Thank you students and parents, for your hard work on the Kingston PTA Reflections art contest. I appreciate your support and volunteering to help. It's always wonderful to see the art and all of the community come together to celebrate the students' creativity!
In this email below I've listed the winners of the People's Choice, which was decided at the Showcase by all who attended, as well as the judge's official selections. The First Place winners will advance to the regional competition, which is usually celebrated in late February or early March. If your student's work is selected for an award at that level you'll be notified by the Virginia Beach PTA Reflections Chair(s). I will pick up the works and return them to you after that time.
All other works (except for Music and Dance) are currently exhibited in the Kingston Hallway near the Art classroom. I'll send an email about pick up, which will happen before Thanksgiving Break.
I'll notify everyone about the theme of next year's Reflections contest as soon as they post it! Hope everyone is inspired to enter again! Warmly, Natalie Bray Kingston PTA Reflections Chair
